After dropping out of high school, he started on his path to success launching his first website, an adult entertainment website, in 1997. He worked in the online adult entertainment industry for over 10 years and was on the cutting edge of many of the technologies that we now take for granted such as streaming video and online chat. He held the number two Google search engine result position for the word "porn" for 18 months straight.
    In 2007, he made the switch to more "mainstream" marketing and now sells over 300 intangible marketing products which are all run by employees and automated systems, leaving him time to pursue new business ventures and develop new products.
    In 2012 Brad published his first book: Chronic Marketer which became a bestseller internationally.


    Brad's home is on 10 acres of land in Ontario, Canada, which he shares with his vegan cookbook author wife Claire and their dog and three cats. Brad, a practicing vegan and animal lover, enjoys all the "manly" pursuits: sports cars, video games, weed and the occasional manicure and pedicure.

    I don't think that will be possible :p

    I will be speaking though, if anyone is interested about hearing exactly what i look for in a sales thread within the review stage.

    I will give you a break down of exactly what i look for and how i test the quality of each sales thread i approve or reject.

    Plus i'll take 30mins of questions.

    Sell on WF! WTF! Don't swear on my forum! ;) besides they'd never understand half the subject's, let alone the content that going to be at our conference.

    Seriously though you can't network or ask questions through a DVD / Download. The benefits are all about being there In Real Life.

    This is just to give you a taste of the quality, we've got many equally established speakers that we are close to signing. But they will probably be announced after the early bird expires.

    Are there going to be any BH speakers? Spammers? Cloakers? It'd be a shame to hear about the benefits of great content creation and building a list when attending a BLACKHAT conference.
